The family-friendly Rhubarb Run invites runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages to kick up their heels on Saturday, June 6. The starting line for the 5K or 1-mile Rhubarb Run is one block west of downtown Lanesboro, off County Road 8. Check-in and same-day registration begin at 8 a.m. under the ball field pavilion. Race time is 9 a.m.

Online registration before midnight Thursday, June 4 makes race day extra easy: http://www.signmeup.com/103623. A Rhubarb Run awards ceremony follows the Rhubarb National Anthem and kicks off the 11th Annual Rhubarb Festival in Sylvan Park at 10 a.m. The Run lets you burn off calories before you indulge in a feast of free rhubarb treat samples at the Rhubarb Festival Recipe Contest.

Rhubarb Run 2015 promises more humorous traditions. Winners in eight categories take home fresh rhubarb pies. All race entrants get the Grand Rhubarb Treatment: serenade of accordion music along the scenic river course, ceremonial fanning with rhubarb leaves at the finish line, reviving shot of perky local rhubarb elixir, rhubarb refreshments, onsite photographer (wear your wildest running apparel) and other fun surprises.

After the race events, runners are invited to stay for a day of rib-tickling rhubarb attractions, including the festival’s signature rhubarb treat tasting event, Lanesboro Farmer’s Market, a line-up of live local music, a pie making contest, Cock-A-Doodle Zoo, rhubarb games, art, read-aloud stories, bake sales and vendors of tasty rhubarb foods, artisan items, and humorous rhubarb goods.

All proceeds from the Run support the Lanesboro Public Library. Run sponsors include HyVee, Kwik Trip, AccordioNation, Frank Wright, Road ID ,and the Fillmore County Journal.
